The XR-4 Series, unveiled at the I/ITSEC conference in November 2023, is designed for industrial users, with a goal to cater use cases where highest-level visual fidelity and immersion are critical. Boasting two 4K displays, the XR-4 headset offers a 50% wider field of view compared to its predecessors. It features brighter displays and a broader color palette, enhancing the overall visual experience. Equipped with two 20-megapixel front cameras, the XR-4 facilitates ‘video pass-through mixed reality’ allowing users to perceive their surroundings through the embedded lenses, offering a unique blend of virtual and real-world perspectives. The device also features inside-out tracking and Varjo’s controllers for seamless navigation in both digital and physical environments. To provide a comprehensive and immersive experience, the XR-4 utilizes the powerful capabilities of NVIDIA GPUs for photorealistic rendering. Currently open for enterprise orders, the XR-4 Series has been well received among key customer industries in training and simulation, defense, automotive, medical, and beyond.

The NU4100 vision-on-chip processor is the third generation of Inuitive’s vision processors series and is ideal for robotics, drones, VR, and edge-AI applications that demand multiple sensor aggregation, processing, packing, and streaming. It is specifically designed for XR headsets, robots and other applications that sense and analyze the environment using six, eight or more cameras, as they make real-time actionable decisions based on that input. The superior performance of the Varjo XR-4 Series headsets is enhanced by the advanced vision-based technologies integrated into the Inuitive NU4100 processor.

“When searching for the ideal partner to develop this platform, Inuitive emerged as the perfect combination of technology, service, and flexibility,” stated Timo Toikkanen, Varjo’s CEO. “Inuitive proved to be a highly innovative ally for crafting an end-to-end vision processing platform that meets Varjo’s demanding requirements.”

“The NU4X00 vision-on-chip series, covering both legacy and upcoming products, stands as the preferred processor for applications requiring high-speed and low-latency streaming of video from multiple sensors, all while maintaining the streams accurately time-stamped and synchronized”, said Shlomo Gadot, Inuitive’s CEO and co-founder. “We remain committed to consistently invest in advancing our vision processor roadmap to drive industries and innovations forward.”
